Tschulding daß es in English ist, ich habe es einfach von os2world.com kopiert:

Hallo,
a word of warning:
there was a serious bug in USBMSD.ADD which might lead to data corruption on USB media (clipped files, corrupted files etc.).
It only happens under very specific conditions but unfortunately it will not show up immediately (no trap or the like).

I am not sure if that error also exists in IBM original 10.162 as I am building upon the DDK code which was pretty much outdated compared to the 10.162 binary. I have now reworked the relevant code but it needs more testing ...

I will prepare 10.205 if time comes.

Hi Lars
Das hatte ich vor ein paar Wochen auch mal mit den 202 Treibern.
Eine PDF Datei 4 Seiten lang.
kopiert von HD auf USB-Stick dann auf andere HD
In der Datei waren es dann nur noch 2 Seiten.
Hab mich schon gewundert wie das geht.
